Golden Rose 2019 Betting Update: Bivouac Market Mover

The punters only want one horse in Saturday’s 2019 Golden Rose Stakes betting markets with Bivouac the firming favourite and big mover ahead of the Rosehill Gardens classic.

There looks on paper to be plenty of depth in the eight-horse field for the Group 1 $1 million Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) this spring, but all the money at Ladbrokes.com.au is on the flying Godolphin youngster Bivouac.

After opening at $3.20 Golden Rose odds, the Exceed And Excel colt has been heavily backed into $2.50 to continue his outstanding spring season.

Bivouac has won two from three this prep, the latest coming at Rosehill on September 14 in the Group 2 Run To The Rose (1200m).

He won that traditional lead-up by two lengths and the big win suggests he will have no worries going up to the 1400m fourth-up with fitness on his side.

“He really flew to the line in the Run To The Rose and put in a fantastic Golden Rose trial,” Cummings said.

“I’d say that he’s going to be ready to run another big race.

“The Golden Rose is 1400 [metres] and Bivouac has got to get up and do it. But we are not going to pull him out of the race out of the unknown.”

Jockey Hugh Bowman comes back aboard the Golden Rose favourite having ridden the colt for a first-up win in the Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield and for his second in the mud at Rosehill behind Exceedance in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m).

Bowman is a four-time Golden Rose Stakes winning hoop and so chases his fifth win in the feature this w

The powerful Godolphin stable, previously known as Crown Lodge and Darley, have won the Golden Rose six times previously.

Outside the favourite there are a further three single-figure chances in the Golden Rose Stakes odds including Exceedance ($5) who lowered Bivouac’s colours two back in the San Domencio.

Prepared by Team Hawkes, the fellow Exceed And Excel colt relished the Heavy going first-up that day but couldn’t string back-to-back wins together when third next time out in the Run To The Rose.

The other two best fancied three-year-olds in the seven-figure feature race are the Chris Waller-trained Yes Yes Yes ($5.50) and the undefeated Yao Dash ($6) for Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott.

Waller won the race back in 2013 with Zoustar and was successful again last spring with The Autumn Sun (2018).

He returns chasing back-to-back victories with Yes Yes Yes and the rails-drawn Kubrick who is at longer odds of $13.

Yes Yes Yes is in barrier two with Nash Rawiller riding the Rubick colt who is looking to go one better than his first-up second in the Run To The Rose.

“Yes Yes Yes races from a good gate in barrier two in a field of eight,” Waller said.

“His first-up run was excellent and he has come on nicely thanks to that run.”

Stablemate Kubrick has been somewhat forgotten by the punters after the Shooting To Win colt finished fourth in the Run To The Rose.

On Saturday however he looks one of the most likely improvers going up to 1400m having finished runner-up in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) in Brisbane over the winter.

“Kubrick is also more of a three-year-old type than a two-year-old but certainly did a great job at two, from only three starts,” Waller said.

“He has drawn to the inside of Yes Yes Yes, which should mean they both get economical runs and be there ready to go when called upon.”

As for the untapped Yao Dash, the Smart Missile gelding has won his opening two career starts including defeating Waller’s subsequent Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes winning filly Funstar last start over 1300m at Randwick.
